About the Couple

Keisha and Morris met at school in the Cayman Islands, after her best friend started dating Morris’s twin brother, Maurice. “Morris was my first boyfriend, then I had to leave for university, but for 11 years we met up as friends every holiday,” Keisha says. “Then one New Year’s Eve, sparks flew!” Despite living an ocean apart – Keisha in Grand Cayman, Morris in Jamaica – they made it work and Morris then moved to Grand Cayman.

The bride’s outfit for her real wedding abroad

Keisha’s ivory strapless dress was a brilliant find from David’s Bridal, Tampa. “I love my dress; I wish I could wear it again!”.

“Morris proposed at my 30th birthday… I was crying so much, I was crying so much, I couldn’t hear what he was saying!”

The ceremony

Keisha’s childhood church was the perfect setting. “My high school choir sang, and we travelled to the ceremony in my uncle’s Toyota Hiace van that we all travelled to parties in as kids.” Keisha’s boss, Jo-Anne Brown, of Celebrations Ltd.
